Right - we have machines we should be able to use (peri/penalosa) -
they currently only build lenny updates today. And yeah, not having a
stable release will make managing these systems a bigger timesink, and
I won't be able to volunteer for that.

DSA manages these machines for us, and it probably isn't feasible to
give non-DDs access to boxes building security updates. So, we'll
likely need to repurpose one of these machines and manage it under
debian-ports. That leaves us w/o a backup for lenny updates, but I can
setup a system here at home in a pinch. Once lenny support ends, both
machines could be allocated for debian-ports.
